    I really like the changes I see in the March 17th edition. There are great photos of people contributing to the community and articles that matter, such as the one concerning rising fuel prices. Keep up the good work!

    THUMBS UP to the City of Troy Elected Officials for the purchase of 110 E. Market Street to make way for a public parking lot serving the downtown area. This has been something that the city has needed for quite a while. Would love to see more mom-and-pop shops and/or restaurants in the downtown area.

    OCTOBER 5th, 2021 was WORLD TEACHERS DAY – the theme for 2021 was “Teachers at the Heart of Education Recovery” and WOW that couldn’t be more true during these crazy times. One day really isn’t enough, but I hope that the teachers of our community realize how appreciated they are every day.

    It’s always nice seeing sports teams supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month by incorporating pink into their uniforms. Its a great way to honor survivors, remember those we lost and to show support for those currently battling this horrible disease.
